I am afraid that Mewhort's playing days are over if it truly is osteochrondral. Without something like adult stem cell as someone mentioned (Cartilage regeneration ) the cartilage will not grow back. This procedure seems more common but for a 300#+ athlete I don't like the odds. May have already tried it but we don't know.
I shockingly fit perfectly in my mom's wedding dress she wore marrying my dad in the 70's. So I am going to wear it for my own wedding in May. Just needs a few adjustments here and there and a professional cleaning since it has been in a box wrapped up for so long preserved. But I am almost the same exact size as my mom my whole life.
Needless to say me wearing her wedding dress has my folks an emotional mess. They are loving this.
But it sure saves me a load of having to go around looking for a NEW dress and spending extra money on it that we can use for something else. Although this dress cost a fortune in the 70's for prices then so it's me going retro. It's sort of a Grace Kelly style wedding dress.
